Noise assessment around airports is hampered due to the observed large variability in noise levels for fly-overs of the same aircraft type, which is not considered by the current models. This paper assumes that the noise variability is due to variations in the aircraft emitted noise, neglecting the effect of the variable atmosphere, as previous...

A joint initiative of NLR, DLR, and TU Delft has been initiated to streamline the process of generating audible impressions of novel aircraft configurations. The integrated approach adds to the value of the individual tools and allows predicting the sound of future aircraft before they actually fly. Hence, an existing process for the aircraft...

The atmospheric wind and temperature can be estimated through the traveltimes of infrasound between pairs of receivers. The traveltimes can be obtained by infrasonic interferometry. In this study, the theory of infrasonic interferometry is verified and applied to modeled stratospherically refracted waves. Synthetic barograms are generated using...

This contribution presents sediment classification results derived from different sources of data collected at the Dordtse Kil river, the Netherlands. The first source is a multi-beam echo-sounder (MBES). The second source is measurements taken with a gamma-ray scintillation detector, i.e., the Multi-Element Detection System for Underwater...

The Netherlands form the delta for some of the major river systems of Europe, comprising the Rhine, the Meuse, the Scheldt and the Eems. These rivers are valuable parts of national and international ecological networks and are of high economic importance. A minimum depth should be guaranteed to keep the rivers navigable. This depth depends not...

Riverbed and seafloor sediment classification using acoustic remote sensing techniques is of high interest due to their high coverage capabilities at limited cost. This contribution presents the results of riverbed sediment classification using multi-beam echo-sounder data based on an empirical method. Two data sets are considered, both taken at...

Aircraft noise annoyance predictions based on traditional tools lack fidelity when modelling a single aircraft flyover. For evaluating annoyance of new procedures, different aircraft types or changing atmospheric conditions, a new modelling approach is necessary. A research effort has been initiated to develop a toolchain that links each of the...

Acoustic remote sensing techniques for mapping sediment properties are of interest due to their low costs and high coverage. Model-based approaches directly couple the acoustic signals to sediment properties. Despite the limited coverage of the single-beam echosounder (SBES), it is widely used. Having available model-based SBES classification...

A method has recently been developed that employs multi-beam echo-sounder backscatter data to both obtain the number of sediment classes and discriminate between them by applying the Bayes decision rule to multiple hypotheses [ Simons and Snellen, Appl. Acoust. 70, 1258–1268 (2009) ]. In deep water, the number of scatter pixels within the beam...

We present a method for accurately estimating the bathymetry from multi-beam echo-sounder (MBES) travel-time measurements in environments with large variations in the water column sound speeds (both temporally and spatially). In this type of environments the water column sound speeds at the time of the MBES transmission are often not known,...

Shallow water naval operations require detailed knowledge of the environmental characteristics. In this context, the BP’07 experiment was carried out in the Mediterranean Sea, south-east of Elba Island, in 2007. Measurements that were taken during this experiment employ a large set of sensors, thereby providing all information required to fully...

An autonomous underwater vehicle with a biomechanical propulsion system is a possible answer to the demand for small, silent sensor platforms in many fields. The design of Galatea, a bio-mimetic AUV, involves four aspects: hydrodynamic shape, the propulsion, the motion control systems and payload. The shape of the hull is based on a modified...

Shallow water naval operations require detailed knowledge of the environmental properties. In addition to parameters such as water depth, knowledge about the sediment properties is of high importance for a wide range of operations. In this context, the MREA BP'07 experiment was carried out in the Mediterranean Sea in 2007. Measurements employed...

Nowadays extensive use is made of multibeam echosounders (MBES) for mapping the bathymetry of sea- and river-floors. The MBES is capable of covering large areas in limited time by emitting an acoustic pulse along a wide swathe perpendicular to the sailing direction. The angle and the corresponding two-way travel-time of the received signals are...

Seafloor characterization is important in many fields including hydrography, marine geology, coastal engineering and habitat mapping. The advantage of non-invasive acoustic methods for sediment characterization over conventional bottom grabbing is the nearly continuous versus sparse sensing and the enormous reduction in survey time and costs....

In a recent work described in Ref. [1], an angle-independent methodology was developed to use the multi-beam echo sounder backscatter (MBES) data for the seabed sediment classification. The method employs the backscatter data at a certain angle to obtain the number of sediment classes and to discriminate between them by applying the Bayes...
